ASG to train Russian pig farmers
The Animal Sciences Group of the University of
Wageningen, The Netherlands, has announced that it will set up a training
programme for pig and dairy farm managers in cooperation with Russian
universities and Dutch companies operating in Russia.
The Dutch ministry of agriculture requested the ASG to set up this important
education programme with a budget of €700,000. The focus will be on pig and
dairy farming with the aim of increasing Dutch knowledge and building up a
training centre in various locations within Russia.
"A gap exists between the expertise acquired
by students at Russian agricultural universities and the skills required to run
livestock businesses," says Monice van Dongen of ASG.
The programme will be put together in the next six months and will be
integrated in university courses after four years.
